Scott Stapp...

I have never seen Scott Stapp's childhood bedroom, in person nor in pictures. Despite that fact, I am virtually certain that the walls in said room were covered with Pearl Jam/Eddie Veddar and U2/Bono posters. Yes, even if it is very possible that nobody knew who the hell Pearl Jam/Eddie Veddar was at the point in time when Stapp still lived in his childhood bedroom.

In all seriousness, there is nothing original about this guy. Not his music, not his voice, not his image. Watch him in any live performance. All of his stage mannerisms are classic Bono, and all of his singing is classic Veddar. Except that neither is classic when Stapp attempts them, because he sucks. Listening to Stapp when you have access to Pearl Jam or U2 is like driving a Mazda sports car-lookalike when you have access to a Jaguar and a Mercedes.

The Veddar/Bono influences in Stapp are about as subtle as a sledgehammer and a steel crowbar similtaniously impacting your solar plexus and your privates, respectively.

I've actually learned to deal with Scott Stapp sounding like Eddie Vedder. Everyone's influenced by everyone, so if Stappy sounds like Eddie that's his thing.

However I haven't dealt with the fact he sucks.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Did you mean to post this five years ago, when it would have been relevant?

I don't think anyone takes Stappy seriously. Well, maybe himself and his family.

I loved Creed until they went on stage drunk and forgot their songs. Meh...
